Well here are a couple of pictures of the fence with an mdf face and the Wixey Digital Guage mounted (thanks again Karson).
Everybody I have come into contact with so far has been so very nice and I can’t wait to get this going, however last night I couldn’t figure out how to post my items on the projects page as suggested ,well I kinda figured that part out except the pictures (most of them anyway) will not fit into the thumbnail size and like I said I am very new to the computer thing so if someone out there could help me out here or give me a suggestion I sure would appreciate it. I sure want to bec...
I went out this New Years morning to shovel the driveway, then retreated inside to work on my novel. Woodworking has to be on the backburner for a while as my knees took a tremendous beating being on my feet in the shop so many hours this year. Instead of moping about it I’m going to spend time on some other talents I’ve been blessed with, writing and art. I went out to clear the driveway again and saw the Freightliner in this condition. I don’t have to drive until Wednesd...
Had an excellent Christmas this year, wanted to share some neat stories with LJ’ers. My nephews come over for Christmas from MS. They are 3 of my favorite boys ever – and 3 of the most rambunctious, too… Our living room looked like Santa open a Southern Branch to his toy shop, t was ridiculous. However, after all the toys were opened, games were checked out, batteries were installed, etc. I decided to duck out to the garage and do a little more work on a jewelry box ...

The final act… Buffing the final coat of finish is the moment of birth for a project. After that it is carefully wrapped and delivered to start its’ life with family, friend, or client. One part of the woodworking process that most of us don’t figure in is the photography. I can tell you from experience that this a very important part of furniture making. It is not an option if you are planning on doing woodworking and furniture as a business, be it full or part time....
After demolishing the basement and cleaning it out, I had a chance to assess the real condition of the plumbing, electrical, heating, and various other parts of the house. Not good! I confirmed pretty much what I expected and that for which I had planned, and budgeted. This included breaking up the floor and replacing all the floor drains and pipe, the plumbing needed to be redone. The electrical wiring was in dire shape. The heating plant (hot water hea...
**Aaaah My cockatoo, The pattern came from a stained glass pattern book I had once. No credits here however as I know longer have the book. Stain glass patterns are a different place to look for patterns and I have found quite a few interesting ones however it is more like doing segmentation with these patterns instead of intarsia. I love this one though because it is made out of curly maple (not the cheapest wood around) given to me by a neighbor of my fathers. And the brighter yellow actua...
I did not have a specific pattern for this, rather I used several and kind of drew from them. That makes this project one of my favorites, as truth is I cannot even draw a stick man correctly.The piece of pine I used for the main portion of this had a hint of blue in it so I thought it appropriate to use for my blue heron. Gee I must have been a genius to figure out that one huh? Seriously though I have been told that this kind of pine is called blue pine, and I have always wondered if th...
I found the pattern to these horses in a stained glass pattern book of which I know longer have so I cannot give credit. If anyone out there in cyberspace knows who did this pattern I would really like to know so that I can give credit. Stain glass patterns are a nice alternative to regular wood patterns and usually quite easier.
